Many of the same anti-aging products that are designed for the face also work well to smooth and prevent wrinkles on the neck by boosting the skin's collagen production. Dermatologists also stimulate collagen production using Fraxel or Affirm lasers during fractionated resurfacing procedures. The lasers make thousands of microscopic incisions on the neck, covering approximately 20 percent of the skin's surface. The procedure leaves the surrounding skin unaffected, which shortens healing time.

Loose skin on the neck is typically caused by excess fat and weak neck muscles. Liposuction is used to remove the excess fat in the neck. During the procedure, small incisions are made behind the ears or below the chin, and tiny suction tubes are used to vacuum out the excess fat. Liposuction is often paired with a neck lift to remove excess skin, and incisions behind the ears and under the chin are used to trim away the excess skin. The remaining skin is then lifted and sutured back into place.
